A Large menu. A little off the beaten path to find it, but huge sandwiches and very good food. Price is average. Manicotti is great, cheese steaks are great, dagwood sandwiches are great. Great food and good prices.

My girlfriend and I go to Jim's often for lunch because their house salad, the large one, is SO very good and then add their garlic bread = yummy! Jim's has been around forever and their food seems to please everyone.

I am not a big fan of this restaurant. The food is OK, but the place is small, the tables are packed together and parking is often nearly impossible. It must be me, though, because I know a lot of people who like the place.

Jim's is a classic in Bellefonte, people from Sate College even drive into Bellefonte (I know how crazy is that) for Jim's food. I always get the Lasagna and my wife gets the mancotii. Salad with house dressing is good so is the garlic bread. I think the add sugar to the sauce which makes it slightly different. Not atmosphere... More

There are some Bellefonte residents who eat here every day or every week. As a local I can say it may be an acquired taste but as a traveler I like to eat where the locals do so you don't end up in a dive. Jim's has been around for many years. Most love the house dressing and when it... More

I recently moved to this area and it was recommended to me to try Jim's. Once I got the salad that someone raved about. It was alright. Not great. The lettuce was soggy and the dressing was unremarkable. The next time I decided to try stuffed shells. They are Italian, right? The shells themselves were great, The sauce is too... More

Jim's is a small, family run restaurant with generous portions of very good food, with sandwiches and dinner sized salads also available. Jim, the owner, can usually be seen in the kitchen, and I think most of the wait staff is related somehow (daughters, neices, etc.) Best Spaghetti I've had anywhere. Usually we end up taking half of the salad... More
